Docker Kubernetes Service (DKS)
Deploy, manage and secure applications with globally consistent Kubernetes environments that run anywhere.
Integrated Kubernetes Orchestration
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for automating the management, placement, scaling and routing of containers. The Docker Enterprise platform includes a secure and fully-conformant Kubernetes environment for developers and operators of all skill levels, providing out-of-the-box integrations for common enterprise requirements while still enabling complete flexibility for expert users. With the Docker Enterprise platform, organizations can run Kubernetes interchangeably with Swarm orchestration in the same cluster for ultimate flexibility at runtime.
Why Docker for Kubernetes
Rapidly-deployable, scalable, consistent environments on any infrastructure, secure by default. Make DevOps portable: one standard webUI, and one set of familiar tools drive dev, test, and production with minimal variation — no proprietary skills required.
Additional layers of security with built-in encryption and advanced role-based access controls. Ready to scale across multiple tenants and across hybrid/multi-cloud environments with Linux, Windows, and/or GPU-equipped worker nodes.
Full Platform Integration
The only container platform with Kubernetes that includes an integrated enterprise-grade image registry solution (Docker Trusted Registry) Calico networking, and Istio ingress for a complete and secure solution that’s developer-friendly, ops-ready, and FIPS-certified.
How Docker enhances Kubernetes
Advanced Access Controls
Docker Enterprise includes integrated RBAC that works with corporate LDAP, Active Directory, PKI certificates and/or SAML 2.0 identity provider solutions.LEARN MORE
Multi-Tenancy Made Simple
Scale Docker Enterprise to support multiple teams through clear separation of resources and node-based isolation. Restrict visibility for different user groups and operate multi-tenant environments with ease.LEARN MORE
Docker Enterprise includes Project Calico by Tigera as the “batteries included” Kubernetes CNI plug-in for a highly scalable, networking and routing solution. Get access to overlay (IPIP), no overlay, and hybrid data-plane networking models. Built-in Istio ingress provides fine-grained gateway controls and load-balancing for applications.LEARN MORE
Secure by Default
Architected to automatically deploy a secure Kubernetes cluster with mutual TLS authentication. Leverage FIPS 140-2 validated encryption in Docker Engine with your Kubernetes deployment.LEARN MORE
Integrated Secure Software Supply Chain
The Docker platform offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of an application. Leverage Docker Content Trust to digitally sign images from the source and prevent unvalidated content from being deployed.LEARN MORE
Certified Ecosystem and Infrastructure
Deploy and run your Kubernetes environment on fully supported infrastructure. Integrate with validated and certified monitoring and logging tools or leverage storage and networking plugins – all with joint support agreements.LEARN MORE
